Florida State extends nation's longest bowl streak to 36

Florida State extends nation's longest bowl streak to 36

After a week of continuous speculation, Jimbo Fisher is leaving Florida State to become the head coach at Texas A&M.

Fisher maintained Thursday that he expects to coach the Seminoles for their regular-season finale against Louisiana-Monroe, repeatedly refusing to answer whether he'll be back at Florida State in 2018. FSU needs to win that game to avoid going bowl-less for the first time since 1981.

Florida State is reportedly already vetting candidates to replace Fisher.

"Kevin's tenure included some remarkable achievements and he leaves our program as one of the winningest football coaches in our storied history", Texas A&M athletic director Scott Woodward said in a statement.

One former FSU quarterback, Danny Kanell, tweeted, reminding Florida State to be thankful for the years Jimbo spent here and to get excited for the future. Coach Fisher did an exceptional job as both an assistant coach at FSU and in the challenging role of successor to the legendary Bobby Bowden.

"I'm disappointed to see him leave, but at the same time I don't really hate him for it because of what he's done for us and I think, you know, he should be free to go wherever he wants", said Dino Hernandez.

Florida State had the running game going as they totaled 302 yards between Jacques Patrick and Cam Akers. Odell Haggins coached the Seminoles to the victory. They'll hire a great coach. Their last conference title came in 2014, with the season bottoming out at 5-6 heading into this weekend's rescheduled game. I am confident we will fill the position very soon. We play Texas A&M the next two years.

He had been coaching the team for eight years with a 83-23 record. I don't have any doubt about that.
